Daylight & Sunlight Mersea Reach

We advised on all aspects of Daylight & Sunlight to support planning for the development at Mersea Reach in Liverpool.

We analysed the daylight and sunlight impacts for this prime urban logistics development to serve North Liverpool and the wider Merseyside area consisting of 4 units of 12,035 sq ft, 21,615 sq ft, 36,000 sq.ft and 42,518 sq ft and a further 4.5 acre second phase of up to 90,000 sq ft.

Situated on Dunnings Bridge Road, Mersey Reach is being developed in response to strong demand for high quality, new build industrial space across the Liverpool City Region and wider North West.

Mersey Reach’s first phase of four units totalled 112,500 sq ft. Units have been let to precision blade manufacturer, Hardy UK; builders’ merchants, Selco Builders Warehouse; and zero calorie tonic start up, Skinny Tonic.

Chancerygate sold phase one of Mersey Reach to Northwood Investors at the end of last year and has also pre-sold phase two to the real estate private equity firm.

The two deals highlight the continued growing demand from investors for industrial logistics space and for strategic locations created within the Liverpool City Region.

Chancerygate started construction of phase two of the Mersea Reach development in April 2021.
